07.10.2010 | 閱讀因由

唔揸車嘅朋友, 你哋平時搭巴士/搭的士/搭火車嘅時候, 通常會點樣打發時間呢?? 我最近就係趁搭輕鐵返工放工嘅時候, 爭取時間睇書喇..

其實哩, 我唔係真係咁鐘意閱讀咋.. 學生時代, 為免夜長夢多, 通常都會話「我的嗜好」係琴棋書畫其中一項.. 點解?? 因為如果唔係嘅話, 實畀老師質問, 係屬於身不由己.. 而家點解又會閱讀呢?? 係因為買咗一大堆書擺埋一邊唔睇, 感覺好折墮.. 但係點解又要買一大堆書呢?? 講到底, 咪就係因為可以扣稅囉(呵呵!!), 係屬於逼不得已..
if you don't drive, what do you normally do to kill the time while commuting?? recently i have been filling up the time reading books while commuting to and from work..

but in fact, i don't really think reading is my cup of tea.. when i was a student, i'd claim that my hobby is one of the standard "instruments/ chess/ books/ drawings".. why?? because most teachers will question and challenge you if it doesn't fall into any of the categories, this is called inevitable.. so why do i read now?? it's because i don't feel good leaving the books i bought aside without reading them.. and why do i buy books then?? to the root cause, it's because we can get tax rebate from buying books (haha!!), and this is called unavoidable..

  47. 买书来扣税啊!?!
    如果没用到那本书的话,也是浪费钱啊!
    有了!把所有送礼的东西都以书本来代替,
    那么你就可以多多买书咯!
    我最近爱上长篇小说,
    每天都书不离手,
    连驾车等红绿灯也要追看书!
    吃lunch时都是边吃边看的。 ^^

    @ reanaclaire:

  50. @ Caroline Ng May Ling:

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ goldflower86:
    oh really too bad.. but for me i won't have this problem, in fact if i read in the train, the time really passed very quickly, feel like i'm reaching the destination in just a short while..

    @ Tekkaus:
    yeah, it's quite bored sometimes while commuting, so really gotta get something to do to kill the time, so that you feel like reaching home faster, haha.. oh yeah, i can read and i can get tax rebate, not bad at all right?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ mNhL:
    i didn't choose to read books in the train until quite recently.. actually i feel that i reach the destination a lot faster if i read to kill the time.. the feeling is good actually, you don't think like you're wasting time communting.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. @ Pete:
    aiyah, but i cannot afford to claim till the max lah.. cos i can't even finish that many books also.. but at least rebate a little lah..

    @ -KeO-:
    i found out that if we can do something, besides just looking around, we can really feel that the journey to destination is short and not wasting time at all.. that's why must try to do something to kill the time lor..

    ReplyDelete
  56. @ Legolas:
    oh yeah, that's really a good idea to kill time while commuting, furthermore you'd feel the journey is somehow shortened a lot.. :)

    @ Medie007:
    haha, you can sleep even if you're standing?? wow~~ amazing!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ HappySurfer:
    yeah, kind of like a winning situation eh?? or perhaps that's why the government allows tax rebate for books, they want us to read.. :)

    @ vialentino:
    haha, i know i know.. all your free time will go to eating nice food around the world right?? haha~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. @ Bananazஇ:
    yeah, i didn't read until recently, and i find that's quite ok, so now i'm bringing a book with me whenever i take the LRT.. haha, of course i don't simply spend on books, i do have my own choice on the books i'd like to read.. haha, of course that's not my bookshelf, my collection of books is not even 10% of those, haha!! just simply grab a picture from the web only lah.. errr, i read English books only at the meantime, find dizzy to read Chinese, i don't know why, haha!!

    @ Bengbeng:
    haha, sorry for that mistaken impression.. that is my my bookshelf, it's just a photo that i grab from the web.. haha, you mean you can also sleep when standing?? wow, that's amazing huh?? how can you do that?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. @ iamthewitch:
    errr, i really don't drive woh, but i can still survive in KL!! haha.. well, only acceptable with LRT lah, i don't like the bus and KTM also, they are just a mess.. :D

    @ Mei Teng:
    oh of course, haha.. if you are not the one driving, you really got a lot of things you can choose to do.. so i choose to take LRT to work.. haha!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. @ bluedreamer27:
    i actually didn't like reading until recently that i bought quite some books because of the tax rebate.. haha!! errr, i also listen to my iPod but i think reading to kill the commuting time is even more efficient.. you'd feel like you've already reached your destination in split seconds.. :)

    @ poorprince:
    yeah, i actually prefer reading non fictions and facts.. anyway, whatever kind of reading, i would think this is a good habit.. well, during schooldays, we were ask to read books and then submit a report every week, maybe that's the reason why i've stopped reading after school, and only pick up it again recently, hahaha!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. @ Chris Chia:
    哈哈, 其實我也是最近才和它有緣份起來罷了.. 呵呵!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. @ Twilight:

    @ Ashley:
    哈哈, 找不到其他途徑可以扣稅了嘛, 所以就買書囉.. 不過我又不是亂買一通那種啦, 我會一次買一兩本, 看完了才又買過那種.. 嘩!! 你連駕著車都可以看小說?? 果然是神乎其技囉!! 哈哈~~ ^_^

  63. Reading? Zzzzzzzz.... Tax rebate kah? I can never remember where I put the receipts...and when outdated already,they would all appear like magic. Tsk! Tsk!

    ReplyDelete
  64. 哗,全部都是"鸡肠"书,SK肯定好有学问。我最喜欢中国文学书譬如西游记,封神榜,看了几十年都不觉得厌。

    ReplyDelete
  65. haha i always observe what is happening outside the window :) lol with my camera ready!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. it is simple once one is tired enough. being able to rest even for a few moment to rejuvenate is a refreshing experience. i learned it when Benghui was small n so demanding in terms of my time. I wasted no time in resting whenever i had the opportunity :) who knows when the oppotunity would come again

    ReplyDelete
  67. @ suituapui:
    aiyoh, you don't want all your books receipt?? then you can give them all to me, so that i can get some tax rebate.. you sure very rich that you don't even bother these small amount at all, haha.. :D

    @ 古小玉:
    哈哈, 不是喇, 那個書架不是我的, 我只是從網上隨便找一張post上來的.. 不過是的, 我最近都是看英文書的, 總是覺得看中文字會有點頭暈, 哈哈!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  68. @ fufu:
    well, there's actually nothing interesting from the window of the LRT, it's the track and everything's the same everyday.. so better do something else useful to kill the time, haha~~ :D

    @ Bengbeng:
    haha, quite true also, when the threshold is already hit i think i will also just fall asleep while standing.. but i cannot imagine if i could still stand still, or already about to fall down, hahaha!! oooh, so you are looking at having another kid?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. 欠扁啦你。哈哈

    话说我买的书比我看的书更多,所以我也欠扁。

    ReplyDelete
  70. 我通常都會拿住粒蘋果睇戲或者聼歌,至於睇書就麻麻,太多字好沉悶。

    ReplyDelete
  71. haha, so this is actually some kind of win-win situation?? you got books to read and at the same time can get tax rebate huh?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  72. actually reading is a good thing to do, maybe that's why the government encourages us to read by allowing the tax rebate?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. btw, i remember we need to give teacher 3 hobbies, and one of those was READING definitely, hahaha!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  74. Next time, you just buy the books. Don't need to read them, just pass them to me! You still enjoy the tax rebate and I enjoy the books! Win win situation! Hahaha!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. If I don't drive and I sit public transportation, I think I won't read. I will be busy tweeting away on my iPhone. LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't fancy too much reading but i love books with illustrations

    ReplyDelete
  77. @ 董百勤:
    哈哈, 那我會覺得你比我還要欠扁!! 因為我不會一次過買很多書的, 是看完了才買一兩本罷了.. 現在手頭上只有一本還沒看罷了~~ :D

    @ 海市蜃樓:
    我冇蘋果, 所以唯有就用最原始嘅方法消磨時間囉.. 其實睇書真係幾好架, 因為一眨眼就到目的地喇~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  78. @ victor:
    haha, i guess you are right.. the tax rebate for books is actually to encourage the people to read more.. so i am fully supporting this by buying more books, hahaha!! but i don't over-stock my books though, i just buy a couple after i finished the ones on hand.. :)

    @ foongpc:
    hahaha, ok ok, no problem!! but infact i will read the book first and then only pass it on to you.. i'll make sure they still look brand new, hahahaha!! hmmm, i think even if you are driving, you still tweet via your iPhone right?? that's very addict of you.. hahahahahaha!!! :D

    @ Ayie:
    haha, books with more illustrations are easier to read yeah?? i like that too~~ haha!!
